Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Nothing special about my choices for this one, except they are all from the latest download of holiday photos.

Mossman River

Rivers and rainforest, what could be nicer? This rainforest is the oldest continuous rainforest on the planet, preserving major stages of the earth’s evolutionary history.

How rich Nature is when given a chance!

How many hundreds of thousands of years have these rocks seen, and now this old tree clinging to them year after year …

Designs, an infinite number, petals spiralling around …

and fabulous crabs leaving their signature on the beaches ….. which pattern will you stop to admire today?

Not mirrors, but the hand of man in a wonderful pedestrian, cycle and bus bridge over the Brisbane river … a continuous flow of people and busses when we were there in late afternoon. All of this from a Weekly Photo Challenge, words by Ben Huberman:

As a kid, I loved standing between two mirrors: moving my arms, it felt like playing in an endless corridor of synchronized motion.

We continue to encounter these moments of wonder as adults, too, when the infinite catches us by surprise. We stumble upon it in things both big and small: on the beach, staring into the horizon; in the depth of a loved one’s eyes; or even drowning in the emptiness of a Berlin subway car.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS US A GLIMPSE OF THE INFINITE.

Infinity can produce contrasting effects on (and in) us: it might make us feel dwarfed or amplified, afraid or empowered. It might take the form of a wide panorama or a zoomed-in fraction of an object. A starry sky? A sea of commuters on a train platform? Rows of corn in a field? No pun intended, but the possibilities really are endless.

 

– Ben

  1. che gioia per i miei occhi tutte quelle oche! immagino chiaccherassero molto qua qua qua ha ha ha

  2. Your photos are filled with richness. I love the roots of the tree and the river; I am reading and contemplating a book by Christine Valters Paintner, photographer and artist on the 4 Elements. Wind, Fire Earth and Water (title not necessarily in that order) and I can’t help but create workshops from it. Your photography would be inspiring and instructive but I’ll do my best from my side of the world.

let's chat about this ...
